It's Homecoming Week in Trout Lake and Mustang Fever has arrived! There is a full week of fun and pride going on at the school. Tuesday is Class color day, other daily dress up themes are Diamond (aka Bling) Day, Super Hero day, and Red Carpet day. Red Carpet is the theme for this year's homecoming which culminates in the dance after the basketball game on Friday night. In addition to dressing up, there will be spirit assemblies throughout the week where the classes compete at different events for points. Another great annual Homecoming event is the Mr. Mustang Pageant. There is one boy chosen from each class 7-12 to participate in the pageant. They are expected to compete in an Evening wear segment, a question and answer portion, as well as a free throw competition. The fun all week will lead up to the basketball games on Friday night . Starting at 5:30 the Varsity girls and boys basketball teams will compete against Sunnyside Christian. The half time event of the boys game will be great this year with each class (the entire class!) 7-12 lip syncing a pop song that will also be choreographed. Homecoming Court will be announced during this time.
If you're a registered voter in Trout Lake another great way to show your Mustang Pride should be in your mailbox. This week the ballots for the Trout Lake School Levy were sent out. The Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Levy provides the school district with funds to bridge the difference between the money it receives from the state and the actual cost of operating the school. This is a replacement levy for the same amount that has been approved since 2010. Passage of the levy will allow the district to continue to operate its current programs as well as address maintenance needs. Ballots need to be postmarked by Feb. 12. If you have any questions regarding the levy, please contact a committee member listed on the levy brochure or call the school. You can also find information at the Trout Lake School website http://www.troutlake.k12.wa.us/Page/1.
You can also support your community by considering a position on the Trout Lake Community Council. The council is looking for a new member. Anyone interested should attend the Community Council meeting Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at Trout Lake School. If you have questions, please contact Frank Childs at 395-2469.
